Story of the Month: March



In another tough month, our panel found it difficult to narrow our nominations from 9 to 5, with only 4 votes separating 9th from 5th....the final poll was equally close, with mgriffin2012 and Griffo battling it out as their two French stories went head-to-head in the public vote. All of the stories nominated this month are incredible, immersive stories, but this time around, it was mgriffin2012 who triumphed, with his Marseille story eventually taking 45.5% of all the votes cast.

Picking up from the departure of Marco Bielsa, mgriffin2012 has taken us on an incredible journey through French football, triumphing in the Coupe De France, and moving from strength to strength since then. Immersive updates and a smooth writing style have seen this story rise to one of the best on the site, with over 17,00 views, and now a Story of the Month win!

What a great read he has given us as well! A deserved winner for this month and also a great runner-up in Griffo's Toulouse story, both of them have blown many stories out of the water with such quality. Congrats mgriffin!

Delighted and a little bit blown away to have won the SOTM this month, especially considering the quality of story that I was up against, all 4 of the other competitors were just as strong if not stronger than mine! Thanks to everyone who voted for my story, and thanks to everyone who reads it and comments on it, you're the reason its turned into as long running a story as it has done!

Congratulations on the victory mgriffin2012! As you said, the standard of competition was quite high and I anticipate it to only rise now that stories from the last few months have begun to develop, with many new writer settling in to a trend. I foresee some exciting SotMs in the future!

Story of the Month: April



In a month when Story of the Month really tugged at the heartstrings, playing on them like a pirate on rigging, the final vote was a closely followed affair, as 5 of the best stories on the site battled it out for the crown.

In the end though, it was lewie100's Pentagon Challenge which won out, taking 50% of the total vote with an excellent, clean update style, and engaging writing. The first-time nominee has made it 1 from 1, in a shock, but not entirely unexpected victory!

April Story of the Month: To The Edge and Back - A Pentagon Challenge by lewie100!
